Finding Our Sea Legs

Barbara Neis and Lawrence Felt, Contributing Editors

Price: CDN$27.95

Book Description
The global fisheries crisis has prompted widespread debate about the origins of overfishing in managed fisheries. Criticisms of existing systems of science and management have led to experimental approaches involving access to fishery workers and their knowledge. Finding Our Sea Legs is an edited collection of theoretical discussions and case studies of such experiments, with a particular focus on the North Atlantic.

Significant institutional changes are required to involve fishery workers and their knowledge in fisheries science and management. Fundamental differences between stock assessment science and fishers' knowledge require new methods for combining and interpreting information. Management structures and industrial and resource management strategies and technological change could affect the nature and quality of information derived from fishery workers. Such impacts need to be assessed.

This extensive interdisciplinary overview will be useful to students, fishers, community leaders, social and natural scientists, managers and environmentalists with an interest in fisheries science and management.
